Revell Convair B-36 Giant Bomber - (small box) Pre 'S' True Second Issue, 1/184, H205-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-

$379   

Very rare, second issue from 1956 that is correct in every way. Unusual narrow height Pre 'S' box has the full artwork and the rare one-piece stand arm. The box is in investment-grade 'near mint-' condition. Color and gloss is like new, all four corners are perfect, no price tags or marks from tags, there is no tape - not even marks from the original factory sealing tape. There are no tears, tape or otherwise, creases, fading, stains or dents. The only flaws are slight edge wear and a 'light' spot just behind the foreground engine that you can see in the photo if you look hard. Has early 2nd issue stand with the two-piece stand arm. Revell very quickly replaced the faulty one-piece with this design. The correct instructions showing this early stand and the decal sheet includes the stand decal. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, 'excellent' condition decals and instructions. The factory clear small-part 'krinkle' bag is present but is split open, hence the 100% inventory. The first issue of this kit looks exactly like this on the outside, but inside it has the three-prong one piece stand and instructions that reflect that and an updated parts list. The third issue of this kit shared the same part number but is in a taller box, has greatly simplified artwork, the two-piece stand arm and instructions that reflect that change. For a long time it was thought that all 'full' box art versions had the one-piece stand arm; that is not true. Revell changed the design so quickly that some were issued with the change.

J&R Models Playboy Senior (Reproduction) - 36 inch Wingspan Wooden Flying Aircraft - (ex Cal Aero-Model), L-4

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$49   

Smaller scale repro kit of the famous Cleveland Playboy Senior. For .020 power free flight or RC. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts and plans. This model was designed to climb very rapidly to altitude then go 'Sniffing For Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and powered models (most all driven by Brown engines) took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under high power and torque, but then glide sufficiently - all in a stable fashion and without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.

A great gas model designed to climb fast and high then 'Sniff for Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts.

Unknown Big Lot 'O 15 Submarines / All Scales / Civil War to Modern / Resin With Cast Metal and PE Details

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$89   

SALE!! Read Carefully! This lot includes 15 resin submarines and numerous small parts - many more small parts than there are subs. The collector had perhaps the world's most exhaustive submarine model collection and by his letters knew all the resin manufactures very well; they even sent him prototypes. All 11 subs are high definition resin cast. For example, some are 1/72 Lone Star Models of very early subs and others are 1/700 models of modern SSBNs. In between are some 1/350. All are new and never built but NOTE: I do not know if they are all complete. Some are complete, but some may not be. Included are bags and bags of high quality cast metal parts including numerous props, diving and stern planes, rudders and much more. There are a few frets of PE parts as well. Please NOTE these are sold AS IS and I will not do a detailed inventory. If I were to do so, I would sell them individually for a much higher price. They are cheap because it is an "as-is grab bag." There are NO instructions and documentation of any kind other than the owners notes which often includes the manufacture and sometimes the name of the kit. Many cast metal details are labeled as well (like Lone Star) but some are not.
